McKenzie: USA's defence has been solid at Olympics

The Americans have done very well with their defence in the Olympic tournament. Brian Rafalski in particular has been a special player for Team USA. He's been terrific offensively and defensively, but it has not just been the Rafalski show. ...more

McKenzie: A significant loss in more ways than one

Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock turned some heads with some roster adjustments for Sunday's game against the Americans, as Mike Richards will likely skate with Sidney Crosby and Rick Nash will play on left wing. ...more

McKenzie: Whitney's an attractive offensive commodities

It's going to get very interesting, and maybe even a little tense, on the Ray Whitney front in Carolina. Next to Atlanta's Ilya Kovalchuk, the Hurricanes' goal-scoring winger may be one of the more attractive offensive commodities moved at the deadline. ...more

The big surprise for me was not so much that Taylor Hall scored a hat-trick and was terrific in Tuesday's game, it was more that he hadn't done it already in the first two games of the tournament.
